- Creating responsive Flutter application using Material Design using a navigation drawer

The navigation drawer is one of the most common ways to provide a user with access to various destinations with an application. As Flutter can now be used to target other platforms like the web, it is important to consider how your application handles responsive design. Successfully doing so enables your application to make more effective use of the amount of real estate available on larger devices. In this post, we’ll see how can achieve this goal.

- Using Firebase in Flutter Web

As with anything in the tech space — take note of the date of this article (September 2019). Landscapes are constantly changing, what is said below may no longer be relevant or there may be easier alternatives.

- Using Themes in Flutter

One great aspects of Flutter is its use of UI packages like the Material and Cupertino design systems. They work to shortcut all of the minute and repetitive design choices like the appBar height or the shadows on buttons. But obviously always using the same default design patterns would quickly lead to a lot of very boring looking apps. We’re going to explore some of the methods for changing the overall look across our apps with Flutter themes.

One of the most basic APIs that Dart has for asynchronous programming is futures — objects of type Future. For the most part, Dart’s futures are very similar to the future or promise APIs found in other languages.

This article discusses the concepts behind Dart futures and tells you how to use the Future API. It also discusses the Flutter FutureBuilder widget, which helps you update a Flutter UI asynchronously, based on the state of a future. from Kathy Walrath
